Ma(m)bo

 
Company B Lyrics
Keating! Soundtrack Musical, 2008
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Ma(m)bo PAUL KEATING:
There's a tale I heard
Of an island man
Tough and undeterred, he said "Haven't you heard?
This land - our land!"

"We belong"
That's what the High Court said
So when you sing this song, you gotta sing it for Ed.
For Eddie.
Ready?

BAND:
Ready!
Mabo!
Mabo!
Mabo!

KEATING:
What's that name?

BAND:
Mabo!

KEATING:
For the Meriam people

BAND:
Mabo!

KEATING:
It was very unequal

BAND:
Mabo!

KEATING:
Was it totally legal? Oh no!
Watch me now!

[SAXOPHONE SOLO]

BAND:
Mabo!
Mabo!
Mabo!

KEATING:
Here comes another one!

BAND:
Mabo!

KEATING:
Native title

BAND:
Mabo!

KEATING:
It's alive and vital

BAND:
Mabo!

KEATING:
Speak the truth and make it so!

And if we follow this philosophy
Demand a land beyond compare
Then girt by faith and generosity
We'll all combine to redefine a beauty rich and rare
In joyful strains then let us sing...

ALL:
Advance Australia...
